NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell visited Eagles training camp today to, among other things, have a little chat with Michael Vick. Goodell told assembled reporters beforehand that he wouldn’t announce what if any action the NFL would take against Vick over the Virginia beach birthday party shooting incident until he spoke with Vick.
Evidently the meeting went well because the NFL released this statement soon after.
Commissioner Goodell informed Michael Vick today (Tuesday, August 3) at Eagles camp that there will be no disciplinary action as a result of the incident in Virginia, based on his current understanding of the facts. Commissioner Goodell spoke several weeks ago by phone with Michael, Tony Dungy, and Eagles Coach Andy Reid. All were in agreement on the need for additional support measures to be added to Michael’s plan to enhance his opportunity to succeed in life and football. These additional steps will remain confidential, but they will require Michael to meet even higher standards.
